Shuffle Along Cancels Broadway Preview

first_img After not playing the March 21 performance, Shuffle Along, Or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed has canceled its March 22 preview. A production spokesperson was not able to comment on the reason why. The tuner began performances on March 15 at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre and will officially open on April 28.The production, which bills itself as a revival, combines the 1921 musical Shuffle Along with the backstory of the people who brought it to life, including the songwriting team Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle and bookwriters Aubrey Lyles and F.E. Miller. Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk collaborators George C. Wolfe and Savion Glover have reunited to direct and choreograph, respectively. Wolfe also penned the new book.Shuffle Along first played Broadway and became a runaway hit in May of 1921. The show, which was expected to become an immediate flop following a back-breaking pre-Broadway tour, ended up playing for 504 performances. The story follows two friends who both run for mayor in fictional Jimtown, USA. One wins and the other is appointed chief of police, but as they fight, their opponent plots to drive them out. The original production featured the talents of such soon-to-be theatrical stalwarts as Josephine Baker, Paul Robeson and Lottie Gee.The company additionally includes Billy Porter, Brooks Ashmanskas, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Joshua Henry and Brandon Victor Dixon.Please note that McDonald will not appear in performances from June 20 through September 11; she is scheduled to return on September 13.Broadway.com customers with tickets to the canceled performances will be contacted with information on refunds or exchanges.

Cooking Competition

first_imgDoes your child ever watch cooking competition shows like “Chopped Junior” or Iron Chef America” and say, “I could do that!”? Fulton Fresh is offering children that chance this spring with their second annual spring Fulton Fresh Cooking Competition on Wednesday, May 30. Coordinated by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension in Fulton County, Fulton Fresh will host this year’s competition at the East Point Farmers Market. Extension agents will educate children about local produce, nutrition and cooking while letting them show off their creativity and culinary skills. The competition is open to fourth- through sixth-graders who will be challenged to put their creative spin on a commonly consumed dish using in-season ingredients from the market. At the beginning of the competition, the kids will participate in a food safety class that will cover proper knife skills, food handling and an overview of the MyPlate nutrition guide. The participants will break into teams of four to prepare their dishes, plan a presentation, and clean up within 60 minutes. Then, their creations will be judged by local farmers and celebrity chefs. Prizes will be awarded to the top winners, but every child who participates will receive a Fulton Fresh T-shirt and certificate.The competition gives kids a chance to learn about nutrition and cooking and show off their culinary skills. It also offers an opportunity to teach people what 4-H does.“I think it’s a great way for kids who don’t have access to 4-H (in school) to be introduced to it or even learn more about the program,” said Renee Ross, who attended the competition in 2017 to support her 10-year-old nephew.The entrance fee is $5 and the competition will be held on Wednesday, May 30, from 5-7:30 p.m. at the East Point Farmers Market, located at 2757 E. Point Street, East Point, GA 30344. Be sure to register early. There are only 16 spots available.To see a video of last year’s competition, visit tinyurl.com/FFCooking2017. A link to registration is available on the Facebook event page at www.facebook.com/events/1657738670947554/.For additional questions, contact Kristen Sumpter, Extension Family and Consumer Sciences agent, at ksumpter@uga.edu or 404-762-4077.last_img read more

Canadian pension fund joins growing list of green bond issuers

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg News:Canada Pension Plan Investment Board plans to issue green bonds in Canadian dollars for the first time, joining a growing list of borrowers selling the debt to finance environmentally friendly investments.“The issuance of green bonds is a logical next step to CPPIB’s investment-focused approach to climate change, and we are pleased to be a pioneer among pension funds in this regard,” Poul Winslow, senior managing director and global head of capital markets and factor investing, said in a statement Monday. “The capital raised will help support strong, long-term investments in eligible green assets that position the fund for continued success.”CPPIB’s statement doesn’t specify the timing or size of the sale, but says the Toronto-based fund engaged the Centre for International Climate Research, which specializes in providing second opinions on the qualification of debt for green bond status.CPPIB’s green-bond framework allows for investments in wind and solar energy, sustainable water and wastewater management, as well as green buildings. It plans to invest more than C$3 billion ($2.3 billion) in renewable energy as it prepares for an expected global transition to a lower-carbon economy.Canada’s green bond issuance, totaling C$8 billion according to data compiled by Bloomberg, has recently been dominated by provincial governments, yet an increasing number of other issuers such as insurers and municipalities have been making forays into the market in recent months.More: Canada Pension Taps Green Bond Market to Fund Renewables Canadian pension fund joins growing list of green bond issuerslast_img read more

first_imgGovernor Wolf Signs Funding for Pitt, Penn State, Temple, Lincoln, PennVet Budget News,  Education,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – After calling for months for them to be sent to his desk, Governor Tom Wolf today signed funding bills for Pennsylvania State University, University of Pittsburgh, Lincoln University, Temple University, and the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.Now that the bills have passed the General Assembly, the Wolf administration is able to release these funds.“Our flagship higher education institutions should never again be held hostage in the General Assembly’s budget process,” Governor Wolf said. “These are high-impact and invaluable assets for our commonwealth’s students and economy. Our state investment helps keep these world-class universities affordable for state students.“Since I became governor, we have turned the tide against cutting higher education funding. We have invested more than $100 million — reversing some of the backwards decisions made before I took office.“Our state-affiliated universities, community colleges and career and tech programs provide businesses with skilled labor and our economy with innovation, research and entrepreneurs.

Pension coalition worth $1.5trn urges OECD to avoid two-tier tax system

first_imgParticularly, respondents to the OECD’s consultation questioned wording that pension funds should be treated “as a separate person” under taxation laws.The Association of Global Custodians stressed that the ‘separate person’ rule would see a number of pension providers – such as UK contract-based arrangements offered by insurance companies, or German contractual trust arrangements, used by companies to pre-fund book reserve pension obligations – no longer qualify as pension funds, leading to an “inappropriate” outcome.It added: “The approaches used by different states to accord ‘pension fund’ status to vehicles established in those states differ enough that a blanket requirement that an arrangement constitute a ‘separate person’ for tax purposes will likely inappropriately exclude certain pension fund arrangements.”The coalition of 15 pension funds shared the concerns, noting the inclusion of ‘separate’ would introduce a new concept into tax law that would be difficult for some pension funds to disprove in certain OECD member states.The coalition further urged the OECD not to define pension funds as entities “operated exclusively to administer or provide retirement or similar benefits”, warning that some providers may provide services “complementary or related” to providing retirement benefits.“Such activities often serve a social and public purpose, but not all OECD member states may capture these activities under the phrases ‘providing retirement benefits’ or ‘similar benefits’,” the coalition’s response said.ATP, Denmark’s statutory pension fund, also took issue with the inclusion of “exclusively”, noting that it had in the past been asked by the Danish government to manage other benefits, such as survivor benefits. It added: “To be certain that the word ‘exclusively’ is not interpreted in too narrow a way and thereby exclude persons or entities with other or multiple pension and savings activities from the definition of a recognised pension fund, we suggest rephrasing the wording to ‘exclusively or almost exclusively’ in the necessary places in the articles or in the commentaries of the OECD Model Tax Convention.”The coalition endorsed the proposed use of “exclusively or almost exclusively”, noting the use of the phrase within Dutch law.It noted that a Dutch exemption from corporation tax was only extended to pension funds that “exclusively or almost exclusively provide benefits for […] disability or old age, based on a pension scheme”.*The global pension fund coalition includes Alberta Investment Management, Arbeitsgemeinschaft kommunale und kirchliche Altersversorgung, APG, British Columbia Investment Management, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, the New Zealand Superannuation Fund, OMERS, OPTrust, the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, PensionDanmark, PGGM, the PSP Investment Board, QIC and the Universities Superannuation Scheme Pension investors worth $1.5trn (€1.4trn) have called on the OECD to ensure a new tax framework does not result in a two-tier tax system for those managing retirement income.Pension and sovereign investors – including APG, PensionDanmark, PGGM, the Universities Superannuation Scheme and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board – asked the OECD to proceed with caution when drafting its proposed model tax convention, drawn up by the think tank as part of its work with G20 nations around base erosion profit shifting.The new convention aims to remove inconsistencies hampering pension funds’ ability to establish their country of residence due to the numerous bilateral tax agreements struck between nations, allowing investors to more easily reclaim tax.The global pension fund coalition, comprising 15 pension managers and sovereign investors*, said it was important the convention’s definition of pension funds capture the “diverse range” of pension providers.last_img read more

Osun stops salaries of athletes, contract coaches, players of state-owned clubs

first_imgRelatedPosts Protest in Osun over killing of youth by JTF Nigerian porn star, five others sent to prison Nigerian porn star arrested for shooting porn with Ifa worshippers’ bead The Osun State Government has stopped the wages and salaries of contract coaches and athletes, including staff and players, of the state-owned football clubs, Osun United and Osun Babes.Tajudeen Amodu, the Media Officer of Osun United, said news of the salary suspension was conveyed in a letter signed by the Acting General Manager of the State Sports Council, Rotimi Dunmoye. Amodu said a copy of the letter was addressed to the Secretary of Osun United.The letter reads in part: “Payments to staffers on other salaries, including Osun United Football Club, are suspended forthwith as approved by the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola.”Amodu said further that the club management had received the letter from the Ministry of Youths and Sports through the State Sports Council, confirming the suspension of salaries.Amodu said the club’s President, Ademola Adesina, had since reacted by urging Governor Oyetola to consider that global best practices forbid abrupt stoppage of salaries of footballers under contractual agreements with clubs.He said: “Adesina also urged the governor to emulate other state governments which have continued to pay salaries of their state-owned teams since the suspension of sports activities due to the coronavirus pandemic.” He added that Adesina appealed to the state government to consider the multiplier effects the salary stoppage would have on the players and their salaries at this period.He said: “Apart from the fact that contracts of our players have not been officially terminated, if salaries are stopped during this period, the living standard of beneficiaries from this medium will nosedive because of the current situation of the country, which has been badly affected by COVID-19.“We therefore appeal to the state government to look into the matter and lift the suspension on the salaries of Osun United, Osun Babes, their management boards, as well as contract coaches and athletes in the state.”Meanwhile, the state government has restated its suspension and stoppage of all protocols on sports activities with immediate effect.Funmilayo Moradeyo, the Osun State Sports Council spokesperson, on Wednesday in Osogbo explained that the measure was to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state. Moradeyo said a letter signed by the state Commissioner for Youths, Sports and Special Needs, Yemi Lawal, had restated the directives.She said further that the letter indicated that the suspension would be “lifted or overturned when normalcy returns”.Tags: Osun StatePayment of SalariesState-owned Clubslast_img read more

Sanchez keen to improve

first_img “I have been impressed by their attitude and their talent. “I love how they create spaces, their individual and collective movements. “I tell you seriously: I like what I see so much that I have repeated myself many times, that if we have the required winning mentality, if we are positive and try to win every single game, I know we can win any competition. “I know that with this team we can win many trophies in the coming years. I am convinced. “I hope to win everything here. That’s why I came.” Following defeat at Swansea, Arsenal find themselves in sixth place, four points behind Manchester City and already some 12 off Chelsea, who have yet to lose in their 11 league games. Like most of their rivals, the majority of the Gunners’ squad are expected to be in action during the international break, with Theo Walcott back in the England fold after his recovery from a long-term knee injury, one of six Arsenal players who could feature at Wembley against Slovenia on Saturday. France striker Olivier Giroud is on course to be closing in on an earlier than expected return from a broken bone in his foot. Wenger will be hoping centre-half Laurent Koscielny can be available again following treatment on his troublesome Achilles for the visit of Manchester United on November 22, having been forced to deploy Nacho Monreal at the heart of what has looked a very suspect makeshift defence in recent games. Alexis Sanchez believes he still has to improve despite an impressive start to his Barclays Premier League career – and insists Arsenal have the “quality stars” needed to challenge for the title. The form of the Chile forward, signed from Barcelona in the summer for £32million, has been the one positive in an otherwise inconsistent opening by Arsene Wenger’s side. Sanchez scored his 12th goal at Swansea on Sunday, when Arsenal again failed to hold onto a lead and were beaten 2-1, having thrown away a 3-0 advantage in the Champions League tie against Anderlecht. In a wide-ranging interview with AS Chile, the 25-year-old remains upbeat over the decision to leave Spain after the World Cup and that the Gunners can lift themselves back into contention after the international break. “Little by little I am gaining confidence in my team-mates and am gradually learning more,” he said on www.chile.as.com. “At first I had trouble understanding them, knowing where they ran, their movements, what gestures meant what, but every time I feel more confident. “I am starting to memorise the moves of my team-mates and I learn to help them – clearly I need to improve and that is what I say in the dressing room, that I could stay a little less with the ball, play one touch play more often to facilitate counter-attacks, that is vital. “I must learn that because the rapid transitions are key in this league and with this team.” While Sanchez concedes the English Premier League is “the most complicated football and not easy” in comparison with the competitions back home and after subsequent moves to Italy with Udinese and then onto Barcelona, the diminutive forward insists he “likes the challenge”. The Chile forward believes Arsenal have plenty of talent to come back to challenge leaders Chelsea and also progress in Europe. “Now that I am here, sometimes I stop to look my team-mates during the training session and I realise that I am surrounded by a lot of quality stars,” he added.
